I've just searched for "Ableton" in here and came up to no threads explaining Ableton drumfunk techniques.

May I suggest this to be the one?

Besides that, surfing I've found that dgHon uses this DAW.

If I'm wrong and there are any other threads covering this topic just let me know.

Thx in adnvance

I have recently tried to get back into producing again, after long hiatus. The reason being that a lot has happened over the years related to the development of musical equipment, and that it financially looks a bit better to get the basics (so I won't be going down into the Eurorack abyss just yet).

Back in the days I tried out cubase, but I wasn't happy with that DAW and my setup. I felt that it was buggy and I couldn't connect everything, so perhaps it was a lack of knowledge of MIDI connections, signal processing and inexperience that made me feel this way. Anyway, recently there have popped up a lot of different DAWs, both free and paid versions, however, I'm leaning towards Ableton Live as my future DAW, because it looks suitable for electronic music, and I have reasons to believe that it may be easier for me to get everything up and running.

I tried SoundBridge just to try to hook up a few things yesterday, which made me think about CPU and RAM. What are the specs for Ableton and what type of RAM do I need (I reckon at least 16GB), CPU? (Intel?) etc.

Glad someone needs help, in this case Spectraz. I can answer the RAM question. Ableton Live v 8.0 required 6GB RAM computers or higher - not a lot. That is a reason many audiophiles like myself use it. Ableton all versions now requires a 64-bit system to operate. This means you need a laptop or PC estimably that is higher spec or built for production. Cubase Lite is an option hence.

Please feel free to ask more technical questions, I'm not always right but I do read manuals.
